A. Introduction: Three Fundamental Flaws with the Content ID System

In order to understand the problem of copyright fraud enabled by YouTube's Content ID system, it is first necessary to understand the three fundamental flaws in its design which enable this abuse.

1. The Content ID program apparently requires no proof of copyright ownership
2. Content ID identifications are notoriously inaccurate
3. The Content ID dispute process is ineffective and gives copyright claimants the ability to unilaterally "confirm" their claim with no further recourse for the uploader

B. Wall of Shame: Documented Cases of Copyfraud & Routine Abusers of the Content ID System
(lists problematic companies and entities, including WMG, EMI and GoDoigital)
